Lynn  2 Girls & A Book
May 04, 2017 rated it it was amazing
This is a new to me author and while this is not my typical read, I LOVED IT. N.J. Ember packs a lot into 100 pages. Wow! The characters are mind blowing and complicated too. Again, I don't know how she packed it all in! Part 1, The Desiccated, is a fantastic start to the series. If you love an action packed, sci fi read; I definitely recommend this series.

I'm not a big fan of science fiction but when I read the synopsis for The Desiccated, I just had to have it. Needless to say, I am now a fan of N. J. Embers work in the Science Fiction department. Which it's hard to make me a fan of something that is hard to get in to, so awesome job! In this thrilling book, Lia finds herself trying to overcome personal obstacles while trying to discover what is going on in her town. Very strange events are happening and Lia knows everyone is in danger. N. J. Em ...more

Part 1 in this serial novella gives a really nice set up for the other two parts of the story. The characters were interesting and the plot was creepy and mysterious enough to keep me hooked and wan

This little beauty has the WOW factor! OMG did I fly through this book and of course now I'm begging for more. It was such a neat story full of originality and characters full of heart. Although there was one particular character I wanted to cause physical harm to by scratching his evil eyes out. The author's ability to make you feel a part of this world she has created, makes it such a rush to read. The depth and intensity of the storyline allowed me to connect within the first chapter, which I ...more
